SC to hear Zakia Jafri’s plea against Modi’s clean chittext_fields
New Delhi: The Supreme Court would hear on November 26 the plea of Zakia Jafri challenging Narendra Modi’s clean chit in the post-Godhra riots in 2002.
The widow of slain ex-MP Ehsan Jafri challenged the October 5, 2017 verdict of the Gujarat High Court that dismissed her plea challenging Special Investigating Team’s (SIT) closure report.
The high court upheld a magisterial court’s verdict citing lack of “prosecutable evidence against Modi, then Chief Minister, and others.
Jafri’s husband was among the 69 people killed in Gulbarg society in the thick of the riots.
